Unique room details like this bedding fabric can be found as interior decor in Punga Cove's accommodation in the Marlborough Sounds in New Zealand's top of the South Island

Had an awesome time at Punga for our friends' wedding. The scenery is amazing and the venue facilities and staff are fantastic. The jetty bar/cafe is a great spot for lunch and a drink, and the restaurant at the top of the resort boasts great views and amazing food.

Wooden coffee table details at Punga Cove are just one of the many natural furniture touches in the Marlborough Sounds in New Zealand's top of the South Island

My partner and I had an A frame room and we loved it. The view was gorgeous and the room very comfortable.
We were able to get a vegan pizza at the bar and a vegan breakfast at the restaurant.
I look forward to coming back sometime and spending longer than just a night.

The Punga Fern Restaurant has a range of delicious dining options on the menu like this fresh salmon meal at Punga Cove in the Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand

We visited for our honeymoon. We knew it would be good but we have no idea how incredible it would be. The hiking trails are jaw droppingly beautiful, the resort itself was way beyond expectation. The food was out of this world. My favourite place in my favourite country. I hope to come back as soon as possible. Punga Cove will always hold a place in my heart. Thank you all x

Punga Cove's Mamaku Apartments reflect the natural environmental surroundings with elegant details in each room like the bookshelves in the Marlborough Sounds in New Zealand's top of the South Island

After a days walk a cold drink in the spa pool was amazing and just what our aching muscles needed. The pizza at the boat shed cafe was generous and delicious and such a nice location for a meal right on the water front. Room was clean and warm, lovely view from the balcony, would definitely stay again
